Here it is, folks. Tyler Perry is gearing up to make his action film debut in the upcoming Alex Cross, based on the popular novel series by James Patterson. Although Idris Elba was originally slated for the role, and Morgan Freeman played the character before, when the film changed production companies and directors, Perry got the nod.
While the 2-minute trailer is too short to judge Perry’s action star chops, like Tambay of Shadow & Act, I did noticed the film’s villain, not Perry, dominates the trailer. We do get a glimpse of Perry working out, shirtless, but I’m still not sure that’s enough to convince people he can carry such an intense role.
I’ll guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
What do you think of the trailer? Will you be seeing the film?
